Sidebar bottom
The AGS Panel is a team of AGS forum veterans who play all of the games here, and give them ratings from one to five cups. The rating system is as follows:
1 Cup Not serious entertainment
2 Cups A reasonable game, worth a try
3 Cups A good game, worth playing
4 Cups A great game, well worth your time
5 Cups An outstanding, must-play game!
Feel free to disagree with the panel's rating, and please don't be offended if you think your game has been underrated!

(Why has my game been rated 1 cup?)

Close window
If your game has been rated 1 cup, please don't be offended! It's common for your first game release to get a 1-cup rating, due to the game having a lack of polish and flair -- which is understandable, because you're just getting started!

Please understand that the main purpose of the ratings is to help potential game players find high quality, bug-free games to play. You've probably learnt a lot about AGS as a result of making your first game -- so why not use that knowledge to start afresh, and do even better with your next game!

About this game

The most sorely underappreciated epic from the folds of AGS and yet the greatest storyline told within it. Captain Mostly's work has remained underappreciated except within a cult circle.

AGS Panel Review

"Yes, I realise there are those in this community that hold these in-joke games in some esteem, but personally I believe this game, like others of it's kind, to be crud. Enjoy."

21 people commented on this game (newest first):

This is totally crazy. I guess you love it or you hate it. I loved it. There are some bugs in it so you should be careful to save the game every once in a while.

What a zanny game this is! Thought it was pretty good and it made me laugh.

This is the HARDEST AGS GAME I have ever played. Also, bizzare. Great.

I love it! Cpt. Mostly, you're one of my favourite game authors! (if we ignore Davy Jones C'est Mort, of course)

This game is so important, my computer made a fan game about it.

This is to date my most favorite AGS game I've played, and I've played a few. It has the most creative use of story I've seen and the beard thing ha ha. I've yet to see a funnier more weird use of sprites.

I don't like it. More annoying than funny. I couldn't make it past the first puzzle and I didn't want to if all I could expect was more bad graphics and ANNOYING music. Butcher's Robert Redford games are far superior.

My laptop overheated after running it.

absolutely crazy game!

Its weird and annoying, but absolutely hilarious. 8/10.

This is, quite simply put, the funniest game I have ever played ever. I cannot find any greater praise than that.
2020-02-11 20:15:57 by LasNaranjas
It's a crazy world. Those of you who like surrealism will love it just as I did. The top surrealistic game of the zany gamemaker. I love it!

Music is annoying, graphics hurt your eyes after a while (seriously) and the plot could be summed up as "the Matrix by the mentally-challenged for the mentally-challenged".

Like the AGS Panel Review states, and wisely, it's crud (and I believe they're being too nice, to be honest).
